 · Pestana Alto

Pestana Alto is situated near the picturesque village of Alvor, its former beauty enhanced by the fabulous white sandy beaches, crystal-blue sea and striking cliffs of the coast. It reflects Sir Henry Cotton's philosophy that a golf course should constitute a good test not only for low handicap players, but also provide an agreeable game for less blessed players. After his death, the project was continued by Peter Dobereiner.

The course runs through two valleys with winding fairways and undulating greens. On the first nine, players can enjoy an excellent view over Lagos bay. The last nine unfold along gentle slopes and include what is said to be one of the longest holed in Europe : the 604m 16th, a par 5. Any player making a birdie here will receive a certificate and their name will be inscribed on the club's roll of honour.
